The weatherman LIED!

Pin It Why does this NOT surprise me??? The weekend's weather was dreary, foggy to beat the band on Saturday & then clouds & rain yesterday. But they said that TODAY was supposed to be the best day of all.....sunny & warm.......NOT!

I was so hoping to torch, but they say possible showers now for today. Think they can be wrong again??? Keeping my fingers crossed.

Belated Mother's Day Wishes to All!

Pin It And by all, I mean all caretakers. I know lots of men, grandparents, etc. who do so much for their children, grandchildren that they can easily be called MOM.

My sister who lives out of state came in cause it was not only Mother's Day, but it was also my mother's 88th birthday on Sunday. We went out for a lovely brunch with the family out east and then relaxed and played board games.

Then when the hub and kids left to go home cause they all had work the next day, the 3 of us stayed for a couple of days & had a fun girls only few days. My mother tends to be more & more of a hermit the older she gets, so it was nice to get her out of the house if even for just a few days. We took a long drive, went for walks on the beach, out to eat & of course SHOPPING!!!

Slept through a Thunderstorm Last Night

Pin It Hubby tells me that there was a loud BOOM in the middle of the night. Apparently it did nothing to interrupt MY REM why it I can't sleep more than 6 hours???? And that's a GOOD night's sleep! Sad thing is I can function alright, but my poor eyes can't. :-(

UGH!!! Migraine AGAIN!!!

Pin It I don't know why I've been getting so many migraines lately. It's something I've been stricken with all my life, but seems to be more of a problem lately. Will have to mention it to the neurologist when I go next week.

And of course today was the FIRST nice day all week, with no rain. I was tempted to go out & torch anyway, but somehow the thought of staring at a flame for hours on end, even thru my didys, somehow just didn't seem appealing. Oh least it's FINALLY subsided.
